Snapping turtles? They are vicious!
that is not even a really big one either.
That is not a snapping turtle; the shell is too smooth. It is probably a tropical river turtle from South America or SE Asia. What a cool beast!
A turtle et' my little brother.I didn't tell Ma or Pa since with 11 kids in the 3 room shanty none of us really missed him and there was more food at meal time.Ma noticed he was gone around 4 years later but I said he had to do chores after school for behavin' poorly and that was the end of that.Ma and Pa and most of the younguns' just forgot about him but I can still hear the screams until the water stopped them.
